Reading time: 9 minutes

We are getting close to the second half of 2020. Five months almost gone, and it still feels like this year hasn’t started yet. Deadly viruses and isolation measures are not exactly the best recipe for a memorable year. You might be stuck at home or on your way to getting your life back on track – Either way, realize that the future can still hold pleasant surprises and that not all is lost.

We don’t know how this year will end, but one thing is for sure: there will be other years after 2020, hopefully, better ones. So while resuming your pre-COVID routine, why not get ready for some really good movies to watch in 2021 and beyond? It sounds so far away in the future, we know. But it’s also exciting to finally look forward to watching the best of what movie directors and film studios have in hold for us.

Log into your Google Calendar, or grab your go-to notebook. We’ll go through every single movie coming up in 2021, 2022, and even 2023! Like, literally, every single one.

Get your expectation juices flowing, and let’s jump straight to our list of the 100 amazing movies to watch in the upcoming years.
